My parents were told by their family and friends that they didn’t qualify for financial aid, so they never applied or contacted the college. I ended up working to pay for school. Years later, I took out student loans to finish college.
I have 18 years of experience in the financial aid industry from the University of Hawaii, University of Denver, and University of Colorado Denver |Anschutz Medical Campus. In my career I have seen too many families take out loans or withdraw from their retirement savings to pay for college. I saw one website offer the option to parents of taking out a home equity line of credit to pay for their child’s college expenses. These options are financially detrimental to the family.
I help families plan to pay for college expenses without taking out loans or using their retirement savings.
